Do you want to live to the extreme old age with a lucid mind and good health? Take care of this in advance. Studies show that Italians and Japanese are long-livers. Every day they eat fresh sea fish and other foods rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. These substances are considered natural brain boosters.

Omega-3 are not produced by the body and should be consumed with food or special supplements. Therefore, they are called essential (Omega-3 cannot be substituted by other nutrients). Unfortunately, our diet is dominated by vegetable oils with an omega-6 fatty acid content. This is, first of all, sunflower oil.


Why should we get Omega-3 fatty acids?


Ideally, Omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids should be delivered to the body in in the correct proportion. In practice, it is difficult task. Omega-6 fats predominate in the diet of modern man. They are found in animal sources and in most vegetable oils. Omega-3 is found only in certain foods, including oily fish and linseed oil.


It has been proven that omega-3 fatty acids have a positive effect on the functioning of the cardiovascular system. The risk of a stroke and heart attack is reduced. Omega-3 improves the condition of the vessels, prevents the occurrence of inflammation and occurrence of cholesterol plaques.


Each cell needs Omega-3 fatty acids


Omega-3 fatty acids are part of the cell membrane. A healthy cell passes inside useful substances and releases waste. The membrane of the cell must be permeable and elastic. Omega-3 improves the permeability of the cell membrane and the state of the capillaries. Fats from animal sources that enter the body in large quantities, on the contrary, worsen the permeability of cell membranes.


The use of Omega-3 for brain function


Good memory and strong nervous system are necessary qualities in the modern world. Omega-3 fatty acids improve the conductivity of neural connections in the brain. They increase transmission of nerve impulses from the cell to the cell. This leads to a memory enhancement, an increase in the cognitive abilities and quality of learning in general. In adulthood, Omega-3 protect people from senile dementia and atherosclerosis.

 

Foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids


It is important to monitor the constant delivering of Omega-3 brain booster into the body. Fatty acids can also be taken in the form of food supplements. First of all, it is fish oil in capsules. A rich source of Omega-3 is the fish of fatty varieties inhabiting oceans. These fish products include mackerel, salmon, and tuna. Omega-3 is also found in vegetable oils.

The richest source of omega-3 is flaxseed oil. The content of Omega-3 in cold pressed flaxseed oil is 57%. Therefore, probably, this oil is the best brain booster (or one of the best). Sunflower oil does not contain Omega-3 fatty acids. In olive oil, the content of Omega-3 is only 0.6%.
